I thoroughly enjoyed Matt and Emily’s podcast! Definitely recommend!
A "tea"-lightful premise!
Emily and Matt sound like very good friends and I feel like I'm in the room with them. Tea is very nice and accessible to me since I live in a major metropolitan area and I think it's often overlooked as a conversation-starter. I would say this is probably the friendliest podcast of all time.
Loved it to a “Tea”
Great inaugural episode. Can’t wait to hear more...and more tea!
